Why is Measure EE on a June 4th ballot and not the next regularly scheduled election?


Placing Measure EE on a special June 4th ballot, at a cost of more than $12.5 million to Los Angeles area taxpayers, is a disingenuous and cynical attempt by the district to pull a fast one on LA voters. Rather than working to fix longstanding problems and then place a tax measure on the next regularly scheduled election (March 2020), the unions and the Board decided to rush and place a poorly written, poll-tested tax measure on a special election ballot hoping that low voter turnout would ensure its odds of passage.
